Lawsuit filed in bus wreck that killed baseball players
TOLEDO, Ohio— Attorneys want a federal court to determine whether members of a university baseball team involved in a deadly Atlanta bus crash earlier this year are entitled to insurance money.
A lawsuit filed on behalf of Bluffton University’s players and coaches seeks to confirm the bus driver and the busing company were covered in the March accident.
A charter bus carrying the team to spring training in Florida plunged off an overpass in Atlanta early on March 2. Five students from the Mennonite school and the bus driver and his wife were killed. Twenty-eight other people were injured.
